Subject: Perlmonks type site for Emacs/Elisp.
Now I am using emacs for more than 1-1/2 years and been hanging at perlmonks often, I would love to have site like this one for emacs/elisp to learn more.
What type of argument would hold to prove that emacs site like perlmonks would be successful and helpful, better and faster than the current resources or complement them in a big way? One thing for sure is that I love PerlMonk interface and haven't been habituated with Wiki interface.
Current Major Emacs/Elisp Resources:
Let me see how well emacswiki.org fits the bill... > 1. Webbased Interface (Universal) Ok, we have that. > 2. Question/Answers We also have that (OpenQuestions page) but in general we prefer to create new pages for problems. > 3. Knowledge repository Yes, the wiki is that. > 4. Regular user base That is also true, if you look at the RecentChanges page. > 5. Chat, Messages, Helping Hands All good Emacs and XEmacs users hang out on #emacs, of course. /JOIN is now on irc.freenode.org -- see http://www.freenode.org/ > 6. All in one place Yep! > 7. More thinkable application I wonder what that is? > 8. Faster Learning Curve We have the fastest learning curve! > 9. Faster Idea Exchange I assume this is not a property of the userinterface but of the userbase! I would like to think that the wiki does that, but I think the fact is that most of the new stuff first needs some throwing back and forth, and that happens on #emacs, where other people will provide immediate feedback. > 10. Archive Search Have that. > 11.(My familiar interface :-). ...
